Scott Bogucki Breaks Through At The Devil's Bowl With The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series

Bryan Hulbert - MESQUITE, Texas (June 12, 2018) Becoming the fourth Australian to capture a win with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, McLaren Vale's Scott Bogucki captured his first career victory on Tuesday night in the Sawblade.com/Dissolvalloy No. 28 at the Devil's Bowl Speedway.

Bogucki is the 142nd driver to win with the National Tour of the American Sprint Car Series, and 10th different winner of the 2018 season. Scott joins Brooke Tatnell, Ian Madsen, and Jamie Veal on the list of Australian winners.
Holding off Sammy Swindell as the pair raced through slower traffic, Bogucki was like a Shark after his prey to keep the BMRS No. 3 at bay. Bobbling just one time through turns three and four just after the race's half-way point, Swindell mounted a charge but was unable to get by the No. 28 for the lead.
With traffic playing to his favor with five laps to go, Bogucki was able to put some breathing room between himself and Swindell. Clearing the slower cars with two circuits remaining, Sammy closed to within 10 car lengths before the drop of the checkered flag.
Asked what the win meant to Scott, the Brodix Rookie of the Year contender replied, "This is unbelievable. I came over six years ago as a crew guy and I worked for Sammy and as far as I'm concerned, he's as good as they come. To beat him, it makes it even sweeter."
Adding to the story, the first track Scott raced at in the United States was the Devil's Bowl Speedway.
"I came here four years ago and ran one night. Honestly, I never figured I'd get my first win on a half-mile, much less here. We've really struggled here a lot in the past, but this year's we've actually been good, just didn't have a lot of luck, but tonight just went our way."
Swindell in second is the 36th time the wily veteran has finished on the podium with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com. His fourth consecutive trip to the podium this season, Swindell was chased to the line by Blake Hahn. Falling to fourth in the early laps, Hahn was able to get back to the show position with two laps to go.
Challenging for the lead at one point with Swindell and Bogucki, a misstep in traffic relegated Sam Hafertepe, Jr. to fourth with Travis Rilat crossing in fifth.
A rebound performance after struggling as of late, Roger Crockett was sixth with Wayne Johnson in tow. Seth Bergman moved up to eighth after starting 10th with Tony Bruce, Jr. ninth. The night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger, Oklahoma's Matt Covington made up the top-ten.
